10 itemsWelcome to Norman B. Leventhal Map Center

The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center (NBL Map Center) at the Boston Public Library (BPL) was created in 2004 in an unusual public-private agreement between the BPL and map collector-philanthropist Norman Leventhal.

This partnership has enabled us to create public access to the 200,000 maps and 5,000 atlases in the Library's collection. Mr. Leventhal envisioned that these extraordinary cartographic riches would be the foundation of educational programs for students of all ages. In support of this goal we have created an engaging web presence and exhibits that are free to the public and archived on our website. Our state-of-the-art preservation program will ensure our map heritage for future generations.

In the brief years since the founding of the NBLMC, we have launched a website, conserved and cataloged thousands of maps, sorted and properly stored thousands more, hired the library's first professional Map Curator in more than forty years, created and distributed free curricular materials for middle and high school teachers, toured thousands of Boston area students through the maps, mounted three major gallery exhibits, and planned for a permanent, state-of-the-art Map and Study Center to be located on the third floor of the BPL's historic McKim Building in Copley Square, Boston.
